JGT Dubai provides the diamond manufacturer an opportunity to meet clients, get to know new buyers and suppliers, and see friends, colleagues and partners from the global industry – all in one place. “It’s an important event, which brings together many business opportunities and the chance to strengthen existing relationships and form new ones,” the diamond supplier said.

Blue Gems Supplier sources its stones directly from mines, and cuts and polishes rough material in its own facility. This allows the company to supply gemstones in virtually all sizes and shapes. Rare neon greenish-blue Paraibas are also available as layouts and in calibrated and free sizes.
At JGT Dubai, the gemstone specialist hopes to capture the fancy of B2B buyers who want to add a stunning statement to their offerings for 2023. “We will introduce a wider variety of coloured gemstones to the Middle East market,” Blue Gems Supplier said. “This will benefit buyers since they will have more options. At the same time, the show creates opportunities for us to reach out to potential clients.”
Another exciting supplier that buyers cannot afford to miss is La Prima Gioielli, a company that has been creating “Jewellery Art” with the “Made in Vicenza” label for more than 50 years. Known as the gold capital of Italy, Vicenza is home to many of the world’s most important jewellers.
“Our jewellery is worn worldwide and influences the Middle Eastern market heavily,” the company said. “This exhibition is important for La Prima Gioielli because it gives us the chance to showcase our passion for our business and strengthen the relationship with customers with whom we have been working with for many years. This is also a great chance to meet new potential customers and push our brand to new horizons.”
One of the outstanding creations within the company’s extensive product portfolio is the “Eldorado” Collection, which will debut in Dubai. Inspired by the mythical golden city of El Dorado, the collection consists of long necklaces, dangle earrings, rings and bracelets featuring irregular-shaped stone-like gold beads in textured finishes, which capture the raw beauty of gold nuggets.
Established in Singapore in 1962, Teng Huat Jewellery Pte Ltd gained fame for its precise craftsmanship and exquisite designs, which come in a wide range of styles and materials. Classic, yet always on trend, its collections span voluminous diamond jewellery resembling shimmering curves and undulating waves, statement rings set with facetted and cabochon coloured gemstones, and contemporary gold creations inspired by traditional Chinese symbols and patterns, to name a few.
Unique to Teng Huat are jewellery lines that strike the perfect harmony between the brilliance and fire of diamonds, the soft lustre and iridescence of custom-cut mother-of-pearl shells, and the opulence of gold.
The jeweller said it will debut its mother-of-pearl and diamond jewellery series for 2023 at the show. “It is important to promote and sell our products to the Middle East market,” Teng Huat shared.

“Focused on the opportunity to welcome buyers from all over the world, Filk supports the vision of building up JGT Dubai into an important platform for all industry stakeholders, many of whom are drawn to Dubai’s logistics advantages and vertical offering,” the Vicenza-based company said.
One of the industry’s leading manufacturers of children’s jewellery, Pie De Rey Designs SL of Spain will shine the spotlight on its new affordable bracelet collection in gold for babies and kids.

Focused on the show theme, “The Centre of Business,” and positioned as “the B2B fair to expand international business into new markets,” JGT Dubai is pacing ahead in terms of exhibitor bookings. The second edition is projected to host about 400 major suppliers from more than 20 countries and regions, representing at least a 30% increase in exhibitor numbers compared with the inaugural show. To meet firm demand for booth locations, a new hall has been added, expanding the show’s gross exhibition space by 40% to about 15,000sqm.
The fair is likewise hosting the second annual JWA Dubai Awards Presentation Ceremony and Panel Discussion, which will take place on Day 1 of the fair.
